Title: Behavioral Treatment of Insomnia in Children: Beyond the Basics

Audience Level:   All

Presenter(s) and Affiliation(s):  Candice A. Alfano, Ph.D.  -  Associate Professor of Psychology and Director of the Sleep and Anxiety Center of Houston (SACH) at the University of Houston

Adequate sleep is essential for all age groups, but sleep during childhood is particularly critical based on its temporal overlap with brain development and physical growth. In addition to sleep problems that persist into adulthood, insomnia in childhood is a potent risk factor for a wide range of negative outcomes including overweight/obesity, inattention, hyperactivity, learning problems, conduct problems, substance use, anxiety, and depression. Unfortunately, up to 70% of children in the U.S. age 10 and under experience a sleep problem several times per week. Effective, evidence-based treatments are available, but the number of providers with training in behavioral sleep interventions is limited. This webinar will provide a comprehensive overview of insomnia in children. Following brief review of the essential role of sleep in childhood and specific factors that give rise to poor sleep, validated assessment tools that provide a comprehensive understanding of children’s sleep problems will be discussed. Evidence-based treatment strategies will then be presented and discussed in the context of a  case example.

Learning objectives:
1) Participants will learn about prevalence rates, risk factors for, and impairments associated with insomnia during childhood.
2) Participants will learn to apply evidence-based assessment practices for diagnosing insomnia in children.
3) Participants will learn to apply evidence-based treatment strategies for children with insomnia.
